I'm Maria Guadalupe Garcia, and a mother of four, the youngest having ASD. I tried to find a logical reason behind the diagnosis.Was it the Diet Coke I drank when I was pregnant of him or the coke we gave him to drink when he was a baby? Whose side of the family did it come from? How was his birth different than that of his brother’s? All of these questions, left unanswered, only increased my tension. I'm more at home on social care issues, and as a parent quite involved in issues around transition. I'm also an ABA technician for Centria Healthcare. Each and every time I worked with a new client, my son comes to mind. He may not had received the needed services. My family may not have been provided with the necessary support and information.
